Someplace between Nirvana and The Presidents of the United States of America and as crunchy as it is melodic is the fresh solo single “Plastered” from Seattle rocknroller Mason Lowe. The Bread & Butter drummer and (one of) the Top Five Sweetest, err Sweatiet Guys of Seattle 2017 says of the track, “When I started writing songs for this album [Morning People], I was going through a long lonely period. But “Plastered” was one of the last few songs written for the album. And by then, I was in L-U-V love. I was a straight-up twinkle toes motherfucker! This song is about someone getting steamrolled by love, is heading off the rails, and is just letting it happen.”
bowled over and feeling uncontrollably fuzzy inside is a true treat. Kinda like the song itself, I’d say. But wait, there’s MORE! There’s a trippy music video, to boot. Directed by Sean Downey, it’s quite the experience. One-off instrumentation, pesky ivy, and one helluva Sledgehammerish good time throughout.
If you’re into tasty riffs, earworming sing-a-long melodies, and brilliantly surreal music videos…You can stream “Plastered” and see its video, here at the GTC!

So I just walk in cock-eyed plastered with kisses
Damage equal from the hits and the misses
Equal damage it just don’t seem real
Oh I got to get my hands on the wheel
If I can’t understand how to handle my mind
Then I’m up on the wall and I fall or I fly…
CORRECTION: Mason was voted one of the top 5 SWEATIEST guys in Seattle. I’m pretty sweet guy, but it’s more accurate to call me a a sweaty dude.
